Problems setting up email programs
I loaded Suse Linux 9.2 on my PC. I tried to set up both Kmail and Mozilla mail to retrieve mail from my Earthlik account. I set up both mail programs following the instructions and using the pop and smtp from Earthlink. I would receive error messages of could not find pop.earthlink.net or could not log on to smtp.earthlink.net or error messages to that sort. Now, when I log onto my Earthling Webmail, I do not have any messages in my Inbox. When I do get a message in my Inbox, it disappears after a time. Earthlink does not support Linux, but they tell me my messages are being retrieved to my machine. When I log onto a console and type Mail, I see a list of all my mail. What did I do that is retrieving my mail from Earthlink (and not leaving it on their server) but not letting it go to one of the email programs? If it's on my machine, how do I read it, reply, send? I'm stuck.
